  1. Item: CAVX Aussiemorphic Anamorphic Lens Mk 4 Location: Adelaide Price: $1000 1800 + shipping Item Condition: very good, installed into a fixed location and not moved, might be some minor surface marks Reason for selling: Not using, surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD, bank transfer Extra Info: This is the second Mk4 I have owned, first was sold to finance my sons trip to the US and I have owned MK3's and Mk3+C prior to these. In between I zoomed to get the scope image. I prefer the lens option for scope viewing as I find the picture to be brighter, noting that the projector I use is a Mitsubishi HC7000 which isn't very bright, but has great picture quality. This would be one of the best value for money ways to get into scope and get the most from your projector. The Mk4's are a great lens and in my opinion, the cylindrical mk4's are a noticeable improvement over the "trophy glass" type lens. I consider this to be the best value for money lens available, very solid and heavy due to the alloy construction. Unfortunately with the adult children moved out and work getting crazy, busy the movie room doesn't get used as much, barely once a month. Happy to demo if your in Adelaide. Pictures: 
  2. Item: CAVX Mk3+Corrector Anamorphic lens + motorised slide Location: Adelaide, South Australia Item Condition: excellent, 9/10 Reason for selling: travelling to the USA mid year and want some spending money Price: $1200 ONO, Price includes courier within Australia Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Deposit Extra Info: I recently traded down from a mk4 back to a mk3+C and decided that given the travel spending situation is something that i can live without/replace at a later date. Sal consists of the Mk3 Anamorphic lens, 5th element Corrector and a motorised slide that allows the lens to be driven in and out of the projector light path. Please note this is not a cinestation. This is an excellent setup and the lens is highly regarded. Photo's oc the setup can be seen in the link my signature.

  4. Item: CAVX MK 3 Anamorphic lens Location: Melbourne Price: $350 firm Item Condition: vgc Reason for selling: not required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Up for sale is a CAVX MK3 anamorphic lens. Recently purchased this to have play with, unfortunately it will not work with my setup. I don't have enough throw distance.

  5. In 2013, I got an email from the designer of the optics used in the MK4 stating that new optic coatings were available. This upgrade has fixed both the contrast and any visible "retro-reflections". Unfortunately, it is not a case of having the optics re-coated as all four surfaces (each lens is made from 2 parts) must be coated which means breaking the lens. So they have to be "upgraded" to the new version. Due to such an upgrade by a client, I now have a set of optics with the older style coating. These lenses are the same used in both the MK4 and the pre 2013 MK5s. If someone wanted just optics, I would normally sell these $2500USD $2000AUD or nearest offer. The set up sale have been blacked out on the edges. Mark

  7. Hi all, Do you want to get started with a scope widescreen setup then this is the perfect place to start. I am selling my CAVX Aussiemorphic MK3 lens with CA correction (not MK3+c). As you can see in the photos I currently have mine ceiling mounted and use a manual DIY slide to move in and out of the projector’s light path. This also comes with the lens. This is a great budget lens and have served me well. It is in excellent condition! I am happy to post, but will do so at the buyer's expense. $600 ONO

  9. Hi All, thought that I would post my activities over the last few days. 12 months ago I went from a 100 inch 16x9 to 130 inch scope screen with a mk3+c and now a mk4 aussiemorphic lens. There a well know comprimises with A-lens, prisms (ie mke 3+c) will exhibit minor non uniformity and CA particularly at the left and right edges and cylindical (mk4) whilst providing clear and sharp focus across the whole image generally suffer minor pin cushioning. (note trying to start a war here just stating the facts and note I did say minor) Anyway in my setup the pin cushining is approximately 25 to 30 mm (top and bottom) at the centre for approx 3100 mm screen width. Not a lot but like all these things when you know its there is bugs the hell out of you. You can see the impact on the attached image which is a grid pattern, the top and bottom lines drift off the screen half way between the centre and the edge of the screen. On way of dealing with the pin cushioning is to curve the screen. I discussed this with Mark Techer for CAVX and Richard at OzTheatre about 6 to 8 months ago, and with a bit of spare time in the holidays thought I'd give it a go. First work out how much to bend the screen, after much searching of the internet for maths formulaes to work it out (never lose that engineering approach) I fell back to Marks tried and simple method which is simply to use something (in my case a length of stiff paper) to measure and mark the height at the centre of the screen, then move to the edge and move the paper out from the screen until the image from the projector is the same as the distance measured in the middle. In my case the distance out from the screen was 100 mm. So a quick sketch and off to bunnings to buy some supplies. I ended up deciding on using a 140mm width MDF to make a box which would then be attached to the wall. Couple of photos of the construction showing - the raw materials laid out on the floor - frame made up and trial put together on the floor - all painted up (blocks at the ends set to hold the ends of the screen 100mm out from the centre) and test of the curvature using some scraps of timber So the next day into the theatre room and pull everything off the from wall and mount the frame to the wall. Brace the back of the screen (good tip from Mark) as due to the cross sectional shape or profile of the screens frame, the screen will try to pinch in the middle as the pressure is put on the screen frame to force it to curve. I used 20x12x1.4mm aluminimum angle. I drilled a hole through the screen frame at the centre and then used a tek screw to pull the centre of the screen back against the box mounted on the wall. So after all that effort did it work? In short yes I think so. The attached grid pattern shows that almost all of the image is now on the screen, there is a slight drift off in the top left corner but compared to the before shot much better. Measurements of the grid rectangles using a tape measure are 1. width is 296mm at centre and 301mm at either side (1.7% increase) 2.height is 207/208mm at the centre and 210mm top and bottom Issue/lessons learnt/things I'd do different 1. use heavyduty/mor bracing to the back of the screen, even with the bracing that I used the screen still pinces about 5 mm in the middle (note however that this is over a height of 1280mm so relatively minor) and 2. the screen material bows out towards the room in the centre (top to bottom) about 25mm due to the tension from each ends. I might need to look at more tension to the top and bottom and letting the edges go a bit on the left and right ends. 3. I now need to adjust the A-lens again to try and fix up the top left corner 4. the A-lens expansion ratio and the screen ratio are slightly different, on the finished product photo the top and bottom grid lines are right on the edge of the viewable area but the left and right sides still have about 50mm before the grid line hits the screen frame. Not much I can do about that except to overscan the image onto the frame top and bottom 5. It takes a reasonalbe push to curve the screen frame, it doesn't do it under its own weight that is for sure. Anyway alls well to far, I might have a play around over the next couple of weeks and provide any updates. regards Michael
